    New member from San Diego, CA. Reservation went in during the first 10 minutes of the hour pre-launch, so hopefully near the front of the line somewhere.

    Currently in a Porsche Cayman lease that is up in November so the timeline is perfect. We also own a BMW i3 that I use for daily commute both for the fuel savings and the HOV access savings (I was paying more in I-15 Fasttrak fees than I was paying in fuel!)

    I'm beyond excited for my Model 3!

        I love and hate the I-15 expressway. Drops me right next to work, but never knowing if it is HOV only by the time I turn to get on in the afternoon has me wasting lots of time during u-turns.

        Now I hope they extend the white decals for a few more years!

        Already done :) Dec 2017 - Feb 2018

        I typically ignored the HOV ONLY signs. They basically just tack on an extra $8 to the Fasttrak fee for using lanes when they're set to HOV ONLY. Looking at the traffic on the primary lanes (the reason the Fasttrack lanes are HOV only) I'd just say screw it. Worth the $8 to not sit in that mess.

          One of the guys higher up on my program does the same thing, just jumps in it every day and doesn't care if it says HOV only or not. I think I remember reading someplace that they will charge you the max $8 fee but they could also turn it over to CHP where they'll give you a HOV ticket. Not worth risking a $351+ ticket to me. I've already gotten stopped once because the CHP couldn't see my transponder. (I turned onto the ramp right in front of him He already had someone pulled over, but then glared at me, and then pointed to the side. I figured I better stop.)

          What has made me upset with them in the past was I had 4 people in the car, but forgot to take down my transponder. They charged me anyway and told me there was nothing they could do about it.

            If that happened I'd fight it for sure as the rules are very specific on their site.

            • Solo drivers should not enter the Express Lanes when “HOV ONLY” is displayed in the overhead signs. If you enter the lanes after the “HOV ONLY” message is displayed, you will be charged the maximum toll amount, currently $8, and assessed a fine equal to the maximum toll amount.

            Still, not an issue anymore now that I commute with the i3. It's a god awful ugly looking car (though better than a Leaf) and only gets about 70mi range now, but It's only about 20 miles each way and I can charge at work for about $0.12/kwh.
